Chrystal Sexton-McEachin

We will dedicate our first lap in memory of Chrystal Sexton-McEachin, a local community leader and director of the Northeast Neighborhood Association for over 20 years. She was a matriarch of the York community, and her impact was felt in her neighborhood and throughout the city of York. Sexton-McEachin’s vision led to the unique partnership between JFS and the Northeast Neighborhood Food Bank. We will miss her energy and friendship.

For more information about Chrystal’s legacy, read this recent editorial in the York Dispatch.

All are invited to register/donate to the Hustle 4 Hunger York Fun Run and Walkathon on May 7th at Springettsbury Park. The event will be held rain or shine. For more information, and to register online visit www.Hustle4HungerYork or by calling 717.843.5011.
